  • What I love about Mears, besides the proximity to Lake Michigan, is the campsites. Yes they're tiny, but it forces you to be a good neighbor, which we need more of.  more »
  • Wonderful huge beach overlooking the lake. Very clean. Nice sand bars not to far off shore, great for playing games with kids.  more »
  • We walked on the pier and along the boardwalk on the beach. So cute and has a pet-friendly area for dogs to swim in Lake Michigan.  more »
